Grampa Chuy’s restaurant in Torrington, Wyo.

February 10, 2011

On the way back from our Wyoming adventure, husband and I wanted to try a novel dining experience.

We weren’t quite up to trying the diner in Guernsey, all the places in Fort Laramie seemed to be shuttered for the non-tourist season, and the establishment on the east end of Lingle was closed on a Sunday evening.

Random non sequitur: Lingle has a cute bandshell, does it not?

That left Torrington as a last outpost before we’d hit Penny’s Diner in Morrill.

We drove Main Street in Torrington, and Grampa Chuy’s Mexican restaurant (1915 Main Street 307-532-2982) looked friendly and inviting – and it was.

I was SOOOOO excited that they had hot chocolate as a beverage option. I was freezing, and the warm drink done me good. Nothing special, but it was hot!

Husband was happy to get a hot cup of tea.

Husband got the Sunday evening special – tamales – and he said it was very good.

I tried the chile relleno. Bleh. Too much cheese and I didn’t like the breading texture. (Keep in mind – I am a chile relleno snob. It would probably be just fine for most folks.)

I wouldn’t mind going back to this friendly little Mexican restaurant.

    Too much cheese? Is there such a thing?? I guess there could be too much if it causes you to gag when you swallow it because you didn’t chew your proportion 20 times! 🙂

    My family and I were in there tonight (June 18th 2012) our waitress (Jessica) was very disrespectful to the poor dishwasher girl. At one point she actually yelled “Stupid B**ch” across the restaurant at the poor girl. we will NEVER go back again
